Recaulking the seams on a very small (6') pram design rowboat
bottom of boat
I have a very, very, small wood rowboat - 6 ft long.
I bought it last May and have not put it in the water yet.
It had probably been out of the water for a while.
It has very few seams - the bottom on done in one piece of wood.
But it looks like some of the caulking if coming out where the bottom meets the sides.
Should I do something to get the wood to swell - like filling it with water or turning it upside down and covering the bottom with wet blankets and towels?
Should I remove the old caulk? It looks like someone had done some caulking previously.
What type of caulking do I use?
Many of the post talk about cotton but I am not sure is that is correct for my tiny little rowboat.
I have included some photos. Any suggestions appreciated.
